Desert (Snow) Storm

A snow storm came in just as I left for the cafe (I’m trying out saying cafe instead of coffeeshop – it’s so much more European – I do need to master the accent aigue – or is it an accent grave – I never could remember that in French class – though I do remember what a cedille is). The driving wind freezes your forehead and a small ache collects behind your eyes as the fine sand-like snow doesn’t fall – it pelts against the city. The snow slithers across the sidewalks, collecting in mounds and layers. Very unpeaceful snow. It was very invigorating to be in it though. And fun to watch people in it.

    I wish that we would get some snow instead of just this bitter cold which makes me shiver and ache and itch in not so savory ways.

    We got a couple of inches of snow today, but this being D.C., you’d think it was some major blizzard with all the media coverage. (Oh, and yes, café takes an accent aigu.) 😉

    Temperature on the beach here on Australia’s sunny Gold Coast is 78.8 and the water temperature this morning about 73, with a 3 foot swell. 🙂
